This installment of the series took the main character to some fun places. This main character takes bold action and does NOT end up in big trouble, which is different from what I've seen in a number of other books.
After the main action at the start of the book, there were hints that the story line would take Jade off to a big fight, but that ended up playing out a very different way. The story introduced us to more characters and gave Jade the opportunity to become introspective - possibly even changing how she approaches situations.
In the end, the big fight is looming. And there is more draw to the next book.
